Crichton to roosters



  • 3.9m of 9.4m cap on 3 players. Other 27 on average of 203k.
    The NRL is ridiculous



  • The TPA system needs a massive, massive overhaul.

    I said in another thread, that in 2019 if Cordner stays they will have 4 players on 1 million plus a season deals.



  • the backlash will finally get the NRL to do something.



  • Absolute garbage.

    “Oh, but we offloaded Pearce…”

    They said they could have kept Pearce. Pearce just didn’t want to play second fiddle.



  • You have to laugh about this, under Greenburg the NRL have given up on trying to make it look like an even playing field.Whatever the “favoured” clubs want they get and nobody blinks an eye

    What happened to the NRL’s stance on signing players on “fair market” value? Given the 3 players value of $3.9 p.a. how can the rest of the squad only have a fair market value of $203k each?..Joke absolute Joke…Greenberg and Grant should step down…the NRL has gone backwards big time since the sacking of Gallop



  • Round 1 next year. Take your brown paper bags filled with some old newspaper and lob them over the fence



  • Roosters have lost:
    Aiden Guerra 200-300k
    Connor Watson 150-250k
    Shuan Kenny-Dowall 250k-300k
    Jayden Nikorima 100-200k
    Paul Carter 100k - 200k
    Mitchell Pearce 800-900k
    Michael Gordon 200k -300k (maybe more?)
    Kane Evans 100k
    Liam Knights 100k

    2 millionish lost?

    Gained
    Cronk - 800k?
    Tedesco - 1 million
    ugraded Keary - 200k upgrade?

    Increased value 2 millionish?

    The salary cap rose also from 7.6 to 9.4 million (1.8 million) - so any players ive missed or upgrades would fit within that…

    Easy to say Roosters are rorters… but I can see how they can fit Chrichton in with the players they’ve lost

    The comments here seem unfounded when you really look at it…

    You are ruining the party….😦

    They also re-signed: Ferguson, Tupou, Napa and Matterson

    Cronk is on at least $1m

    Haha sorry to attempt some rational analysis…

    Yes they did re-sign … but that wouldn’t go near the 1.8 million cap increase (maybe 500k on upgrading those players at most?)… the losses and gains seem to cancel out… leaving the $1.8 cap increase.
    Sorry to actually try and apply some quantitative logic but I read some of the stuff here and get frustrated… always dragging the NRL down Paul Kent style…



  • Does anyone seriously believe Crichton was not committed to the Roosters much earlier, possibly even last year when he started to perform? All this conjecture about his future reminds me of the Tedesco signing.

    Does the NRL police payments made to managers specifically those paid by clubs to managers to have their clients sign with new clubs?



  • Its hard to believe how NRL players these days go from nuffies to superstar pay packets in the space of 12 months…The greed that is in the game is very sad…

    if the Roosters win the comp in the next 2 or 3 years it can only be a hollow one within the ranks, surely they can’t hold the trophy up and feel like they “won” it…or lay claim to have “earned” it…they “bought” it…Gee, I hate the way the game has changed in the last 10-15 years…but I still follow it and my team… there is no way this competition is a level playing field…

    The argument about cap increase doesn’t wash. I’ve said this before - everyone gets the cap increase, it’s the same increase across all clubs.

    But for some reason Roosters appear capable of purchasing $1M players, 3 times no less, whereas no other club can seem to do so. Rabbits were outbid for Crichton and I can understand that, they have some expensive talent like Inglis and Burgess. But they were outbid by a team that already has MORE expensive talent and still somehow finds space.
